Another of Berlin's beautiful buildings that allows access to the tower for a nominal fee. 250 steps up to the dome rewards you with lovely views across Berlin and over Gendarmenmarkt and surrounding buildings.

Some steps to climb, mandatory. Great experience. Impressive views. Beware the sounds of the Carillon when inside.

we climbed the stair to see this magnificent view of the city center. It was around 3 euros and I liked much more than the view of the Park Inn I strongly recommend if you are near this place and have around 30-45 minutes.

Long walk up to the top but a nice aerial view of Berlin. Worth doing if you can withstand the 5-10 min walk up the stairs. Not recommend for those who have limited mobility

Gendarmenmarkt has got three beautiful building - Französiche Dom, Deutsche Dom and Konzerthaus. Very nice architecture, the church was built for the hugenottes, who left France. There are ver good concerts in the Dom, which never became a Cathedral.

Gendarmenmarkt sports two twin churches, the German church and its more beautiful sister, the French Church (Franzoesischer Dom). Remember that in the 17th century about a fifth all Berliners were French emigrants, mainly Protestants seeking shelter from Catholic France.

The centre of Berlin, Mitte is most famous for sights
like the Brandenburg Gate, Alexanderplatz, and Museum
Island. The central location makes this one of the
city's most expensive places to live. It is here the
oldest traces of the city can be found, and evidence
of some significant transformations, as well. The

between Alexanderplatz and Hackescher Markt have given
